Cruises are such a great value

You know.......cruises are such a great option for vacationing. When you are on a cruise ship, all of this is included: your cabin, meals in the public restaurants and buffet, all of the onboard entertainment, much more and all of the people watching you can stand!

I bring this up because I was talking to a client about the differences in prices and inclusions, as well as, exclusions between a cruise vacation and a land vacation.

With a land vacation, you pay for your accomodations, purchase all of your food and entertainment....you still get to do all of the people watching you can stand!

Don't get me wrong, land based vacations are great! I love taking them and selling them. However, when talking about overall value, a cruise vacation is almost always a better value.

Just my opinion.

I agree with you 100%! A Cruise vacation is all-inclusive. It includes all your food, your accommodations, and entertainment. You visit multiple destinations, but pack and unpack only once. It is great for the family because there is something to do for everyone in the family from Grandpa to the little brother. Customer service on cruise ships is usually exceptional, and it is truly a vacation where everyone gets pampered. Our family has cruised on Disney, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian. For the bang for the buck we tend to sail most with Royal Caribbean! Hoping to do the Oasis or Allure soon.

If you want a vacation where mom can spoil herself, and the kids and dad will have plenty to do, cruising is it!

With kids you can't ever please all of them at the same time! On a cruise, there is something for every person! Love cruises!!

Good comments, Greg! Some folks complain that cruising isn't the all inclusive vacation it used to be, and while there are SOME benefits to staying at an AI resort, I still feel a cruise gives you the most VALUE for the money that a land resort just cannot offer.

I couldn't agree more! I love land vacations, but with a cruise you do get more bang for your buck!

Eastern Coastline on Cozumel

Eastern Coastline on Cozumel


This warm seaside setting with brilliant white sand is what originally drew visitors from all over the world to Cancun, and now this vacation destination is better than ever. To compliment the stunning beaches, spectacular sunsets, and fantastically preserved archaeological treasures, this world-class resort destination sets travelers at ease with its friendly hospitality and modern day amenities.The action here centers around three bodies of water - the Caribbean Sea with its amazing scenery and strong surf - the calm waters of the Bahia de Majeres, perfect for kids and families - and the Nichupte Lagoon, a hub for water sports.The nearby Mayan archaeological sites are likely to tug you away from all the pleasures of resort living for at least a day, and they are a worthwhile diversion. Travel through time at any of the 1,200 archaeological sites that are scattered along the Riviera Maya, including sites at Tulum, Coba, and Chichen Itza.Cancun’s combination of romantic setting and easy access makes it a popular choice for destination weddings as well as honeymoons. A Valid passport is required. Call Greg Boyanton at 601-992-8109 to arrange a relaxing getaway for you.
